  1. I think it goes without saying that I'd prefer to draft him in the 7th. It's really hard to predict where he would go. I mean, once you get to the 5th round, it's really just a toss up, but even more so when you get to the 6th and 7th. To me, these are the picks that you try to hit home runs with or look for solid depth and special teams guys. About a month and a half ago after the combine, he was projected as a 7th-UDFA. Since the combine, I've seen him predicted as high as the 5th. Clearly this kid is getting attention. I can't say I'd take him in the 5th, but I would want to becaus
  2. Definitely not where I'd go with our first pick. Maaaybe the 3rd, but it would have to be Matthews, Adams, or Moncrief, none of which who is likely to be there. I don't think we draft a CB in the 2nd, but one CB I couldn't pass up on is Jason Verrett and I do think ther'es a chance he falls to us given his surgery.
  3. Well I agree with you that we should go BPA. There's intriguing prospects everywhere. I don't like taking any CB in the 2nd unless Verret falls to us. I'd consider Jimmie Ward or Brooks in the 2nd, too. As for DL, what exactly were you talking about specifically? Because, from where I stand, the OLB in our defense kind of functions as a DL.
  4. It should be no secret by now my endorsement of Howard Jones. He is a guy that I noticed during the combine. There’s been very little film on him that I could find, but to be honest, any game film you find on him at Shepherd should be taken with a grain of salt since it’s a lower division of college football. The game film on draftbreakdown.com is no exception and can be found at http://draftbreakdown.com/video/howard-jones-vs-nflpa-game-2013/. You’ll notice a guy with good power, raw but coachable traits, undeveloped but very intriguing potential that I would spend our 6/27th pick on him
  5. Well, I don't think they have bad instincts, I did say they had average to good instincts. They aren't elite or anything. As far as a smash mouth ILB, they would be fine at that. But you never really have a guarantee that a run down will actually be a run and vice versa. I geuss my view on it is, I'd rather have an average run stopper up the middle who gives up a 4 yard run play, but doesn't give up the swing pass to the edge like Freeman than a guy who can get a 1 yard stop up the middle who gives up 5 of on the off tackle. I know that's an overly simplistic way to view things, but with
  6. I think he's (EDIT: talking about Mauro) a bit underrated. If we had a 4th, I'd consider taking him. Would be all over it with a 5th.
  7. Well, I've already made my distaste for this ILB class well known. So my analysis of these players assumes we're talking abotu a 5th round, 26th overall selection by the Colts. My problem with Skov is the same problem I have with Bullough, average to good instincts, but a liability in coverage and sideline to sideline tackling. We run a lot of man, so that poses significant problems on 2nd/3rd down and mid-range to go. At least with Bullough, you don't have the serious injury history. And while in Bullough, you've got character flaws, I'll take his character issue (which I see as more of
  8. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see Skov fall to the 5th...and I wouldn't take him if he were there.
  9. lol me either. The game gets rather boring after you get a high score. I like it better when there's guys I actually want to draft available (although, I would take Xavier, just probably not with our first pick).
  10. Now #1. Just goes to show that the scoring on this doesn't really result in a good draft. Wha'ts weird is I couldn't even crack the list of top 20 for anything under the old system. Makes me wonder how they actually graded it. Under the new one, you just have to get lucky. Your score is: 6144 (GRADE: A) Your Picks: Round 3 Pick 24 (CINN): Ed Reynolds, FS, Stanford (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas (A) Round 3 Pick 30 (S.F.): Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina (A) Round 4 Pick 23 (CINN): Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia (A) Round 5 Pick 26: Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh (A) R
  11. Had to share this one with you all. Couldn't believe Sua'Filo was there with the 2/27. Did like 3 double checks to make sure I was actually on my pick. Went for high score. #5 overall baby!! Well, for Colts high scores anyway lol. Your score is: 5913 (GRADE: A) Your Picks: Round 2 Pick 27: Xavier Su'a-Filo, OG, UCLA (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State (A) Round 5 Pick 26: Morgan Breslin, OLB, Southern California (A) Round 6 Pick 27: Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh (A) Round 7 Pick 17: Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama (A)
  12. So, this was weird. When it first started out, I wanted to trade back and get an early 3rd and 4th round. Didn't even look to see was available. The best option was to drop back 4 spots and pick up a late 4th rounder. To my surprise, Gabe Jackson was still there...and then Jordan Matthews. Not sure the Colts would want to pick up an OL with their 2nd round pick (and I wasnt' even sure I did either, but went with it anyway). Oh, and the 6/27 I was able to drop back 2 spots nad pick up the 7/7 as well. Forget the grade, I kinda like this draft even if I highly doubt we'd go OG and WR with
  13. I was wondering how you accomplished that. I've been able to trade a 2015 1st round for the #26 overall like you. But the best guys I've been able to get there is Calvin Pryor and CJ Mosley. Once I was able to trade for I believe the 23rd pick (2015 first round and 6th round pick) and picked up Taylor Lewan who slipped that far. But dont' know if that would work under the new system.
  14. Thomas improved at his pro day. I know people make a bigger deal out of 40 times than they should, but he clocked an unofficial 4.34 and 4.35, which I would think as a specialist, you couldn't ignore given his college production as returner. I've been a fan of McKinnon as well. Like you, I don't know if we go that route, but I wouldn't be terribly disappointed if we took an all around, quick back who we would use in several positions to utilize his playmaking ability and get him into space (I'm thinking like Julian Edelman).
  15. Cash in while you've got marketability left I guess.
  16. Yep. Wouldn't mind any of those guys either. As far as ST returners, I don't even really know what they look for. It seems like you just pick a fast guy and hope u get lucky.
  17. Really? I'm a fan of the guy...I mean, 6th round or lower. I wish I could remember who else was there. But once you get to the 6/27...its' like like 3/4 RBs/WRs/DTs, and the rest are guys that will be there with the 7/17. But a guy that nets me a bad score that I really would take here is OLB Howard Jones. I wouldnt' care if we had Van Noy. I think this kid is going to be a sleeper pick. Really like that kid.
  18. Really? He's there all the time for me. In fact, the one draft where I traded the 3rd and 6th round for 2 4th rounders...McGill AND Moncrief were available at the 4th round, 4th pick...I was devastated because I know neither would be there for the second lol.
  19. This is probably how I would have done the previous draft. I can only take this game so long, . Your score is: 4612 (GRADE: B+) Round 2 Pick 27: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Keith McGill, CB, Utah (A-) Round 5 Pick 26: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan (A-) Round 6 Pick 27: Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama (A) Round 7 Pick 17: Alden Darby, SS, Arizona State (B)
  20. This was one I was drafting for grade. McGill was available, and if this were a real draft, I'd have taken him over Quarles. Schofield, if there at #5 I would take. There was no real FS there, but Alden Darby was avaialable at the time. In fact, more often than not, he is available in the 7th.
  21. Think he meant he had to make a ton of trades just to get a decent grade. Which is true about this game. Either that, or your draft BPA available, but then you get docked because you aren't drafting a "Top 3 Need." It just doesn't make a lot of sense. And it's why I can't, for the life of me figure out how people get 6000 and higher for the Colts.
  22. This netted me my highest grade that I've ever been able to get. Would have liked to get a FS in there, but it wasn't in the cards. Your score is: 5040 (GRADE: A-) Your Picks: Round 2 Pick 27: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young (A) Round 3 Pick 26: Kelcy Quarles, DT, South Carolina (A) Round 5 Pick 26: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan (A-) Round 6 Pick 27: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana (A) Round 7 Pick 17: Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma (A-)
